My wife and I are anxious but excited, and my kids are - of course - ecstatic. When I explained it to them the first words out of their mouths were "Woohoo! We're moving to Disneyland!" :blink:


:twitch: ... that's the spirit! :D

Yes, he will be missed. But it looks like he has an exciting opportunity. Good luck to him and his family. :blink:

Wait, Disney? Aren't those the company that, in recent times, somehow always manage to screw movies up?

Yes, but with the help of Josh Staub it might get better again. :twitch:

I have no faith in Disney at all. Ever since they completely decimated Inspector Gadget I've no love for the company at all.

Still, I wish Josh all the best. I hope he gets to work on some decent projects!

Things have been looking up since the Pixar merger. Many of Pixar's key people are now in high positions at Disney. Eisner is gone as well.

It's nowhere near as bad as it was around 2004-ish.

Of course, Pixar is not one man. :twitch:
But seriously, Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Cinderella 2, Bambi 2. They all made me cry as soon as the credits rolled up. Does Disney have a talent for screwing their own IPs up?

Josh has worked hard enough over the years to FINALLY be recognized for his ability.

He will do well wherever he goes. (It's just nice to see him land something so big).

I offer him my deepest gratitude and appreciation for all he HAS done, as well as all he has the potential to do - more than 'serviceable' work wherever he goes I'd wager. There are few talents like him, I'm pretty sure Disney knows that.

Besides, I have his personal 'John Henry' on his 'Mantis Parable' in my collection - who could want for more?

John Lasseter is now head of the animation stuff - so things should look up for Disney now. I, too, sent Josh my best wishes and received a nice reply in return.

I wonder how many other people - besides Rand - have been at Cyan for almost 14 years?

Josh has posted on the MOUL forums - he and his family are now in their new home in California, with lots of boxes to unpack!
